Italian black/doom metallers Forgotten Tomb will be releasing their eighth studio album Hurt Yourself and The Ones You Love on April 17, 2015 in Europe and April 21, 2015 in North America via Agonia Records.
The new album is a “mix of melancholy, groove and pure malignancy” – as put by the band’s leader, Ferdinando “Herr Morbid” Marchisio. “We kept the sound very organic and natural, kinda old-fashioned but still very fresh. The new songs are heavy as fuck and they feature our classic trademark plus some new elements. I can’t wait for people to listen to it, ’cause it’s a really special album for us and probably the most extreme we did in quite a while, both musically and conceptually”.
Hurt Yourself and The Ones You Love was recorded and mixed in Sound Suite Studios (Marseille, France) with Terje Refsnes (Carpathian Forest, Novembre, Gehenna, Destroyer 666) behind the knobs. Brad Boatright of Audiosiege Studio (Corrosion Of Conformity, Nails, Vallenfyre, Beastmilk, High On Fire) took care of the mastering in Portland (Oregon, USA).
